Sprecher's Arrived for the New Year

My kids brought me three cases of my favorite soda...Sprechers Cherry Cola.. over the holidays.  In addition to that great Cola, they included sample four-packs of-
 
Orange Creme soda
Puma cola (Vanila and ginseng)
HARD Root Beer  (interesting taste...not bad at all)
Bavarian Black Beer
Root Beer Bar B Que Sauce
 

 
All in all a nice variety of drinks to sample.

    First taste is of Root Beer then the spicy BBQ creeps up on you. Not super spicy, but not a diluted soda sauce either.  Interesting variation...I tend to like sweeter suces.

    What does "hard" mean, Mr. Mayor?

    It has 5% alcohol, about the same as most mass-produced beers. 
     
    For those not familiar with Sprechers...Soda is a secondary product line for the Wisconsin-based beer brewery. They are known thru the Mid West for their better than average specialty beers. Sort of a Smaller version of a Sam Adams style brewery

    Was surprised to see Sprechers soda at a Sheetz convenience store near here. Will have to try it out.
    My kids once got me a 12 pack of Sundrop for Christmas. I thought it was the greatest soda when we traveled south. Now that it's available here I never get it.

    Sprecher's Root Beer is outstanding! Use it to make a Black Cow.

     bumping up an old post ... but having just come across it ...
    the Sprecher Black Bavarian beer in that photo is just about my favorite beer ... say, tied for first with about 4 or 5 other contenders (hey, beer is a big field).  Great soda pop from Sprecher too though I'm not much of a pop drinker.  That Black Bavarian is a Kulmbacher style beer ... another similar beer is August Schell Schmaltz's Alt ... hard to find but worth the search - similar taste but not as dark.
    Had a one of those "pavlov's dog" responses to that photo ... thirsty now. Prosit!
